Scallop Edge Medallion

by Alesha Walls

Create a medallion with your scallop edge punch.


  • Cardstock
  • Scallop Edge Punch (or other similar punch by Fiskars®)
  • Paper Cutter


  1. Step 1

    Cut card stock to a 2¾" square.

  2. Step 2

    Place the cardstock in the punch so that an equal amount of card stock is showing on each side of the punch. The gridlines on the base of the punch will help with alignment.

    As long as it’s centered, it will turn out well.

  3. Step 3

    After punching the first side, rotate the card stock and punch again, making sure the card stock is centered on the gridlines.

  4. Step 4

    Punch all four sides of your square this way.

  5. A finished scallop edge medallion.

  6. Step 5

    Attach the medallion. Either leave the medallion as is, or you can weave card stock, ribbon or material through the gap. For this card, a strip of card stock was woven between the gaps in the medallion.

  7. Step 6

    Try adding a scalloped edge to your envelope. Center the scallop punch on the flap of the envelope and punch.

  8. After the first punch, line up your scallops with the scallop images on the punch and punch again. Repeat until your entire envelope flap is punched.

    There will still be enough adhesive to seal the envelope.

  9. Step 7

    A complete set – a beautiful card with a scallop edge medallion and a matching envelope with a scallop edge flap.



    Different Sizes
    You can make larger or smaller scallop edge medallions if you play around with the size of the square.

I have a question, does the size of the scallop on the punch make a difference? My punch seems to have a smaller pattern.

The use of the scallop punch was a great idea. I tried different card ideas with it today and it turned out really nice. I love getting new ideas. This worked on the first try which doesn't happen often.

I have done this same thing with my Fiskars border punches. I just got the scallop punch and I forgot about making these. I like the name you choose - medallion. I love how you threaded the paper through it - I never thought about doing that.
Beth Adams  |  Wed Oct 8, 2008 at 12:36 PM
This is the reason I bought this punch.
